East Midlands Trains: 2012 Pay Increase for Displaced Staff

8 November 2012

Members will be aware that the Company had for the first time taken the step of preventing those staff who were previously displaced from receiving this yearÂ’s pay increase. This is despite the fact that they have always applied pay increases in previous years.

After some discussion with the company, they have now agreed to apply the pay rise to displaced staff, and committed to applying any agreed future pay rises to this group of staff also. This is the good news. However, the company has also qualified this by stating that they don’t want this to set a precedent for any future displacements or re-organisations! If left unchallenged, this position would leave all future displaced staff vulnerable in respect of future pay increases.

I have written to the company stating that we do not accept this position, and that we will defend our member’s interests if they decide to take this stance in the future. It is therefore imperative that we have a good membership base, in which not only challenge such decisions, but in order to defend our members interests in future dealings with the company.
